Mitsubishi Motors Australia LTd—Fuso Heavy Truck

What are the defects?

Investigations have shown that if an affected vehicle is subjected to abnormally frequent hill starts or quick take offs, the weld between the propeller shaft spine and pipe may crack in extreme cases. This is due to the weld lacking sufficient durability. If the truck continues to be driven in this condition there is the possibility the propeller shaft may break, preventing drive from being transmitted to the rear wheels.
